Happy to announce that the LION
– copy n.4 of the TRUDE RABBIT deluxe serie –
has received his first reservation.
So we want to take the occasion to remember that each copy is unique and not reproducible
because the fragment on the front cover is an original one
Remembering how it works:
each book from a limited serie of 30 is a
continuous 6 meters book
hand bound by the artist herself
having on the front cover a different fragment from the original roll of drawings which generated the book itself.
We’ll present some books every week, as the work goes on… enjoy!
This week, in order of appearance:
n.5: toad made of stone
n.6: pattern birds
n.7: toothed duck
Talking and images about Bambi Kramer’s CUT UP, TRUDE RABBIT, FORTEPRESSA and CRACK! Festival…

TRUDE RABBIT is a post-victorian, neo-psychedelic trip of a zoomorphic Alice. Rolling out her fragmented visions Trude recomposes them through the [looking] glasses of a WhiteRabbit affected by a multiple personality disorder.
Along the pages images match one to the other for a total of six meters in length. The book is a cut-up work, that leads an eight meters roll drawn with no stop into the tale’s dimension.
